End of an Era

abandoned service station

So, the Lyneham servo finally closed it’s doors on the weekend.

The bike shop left months ago.

Soon the place will dug up and (presumably) the ground detoxed to make way for some more units … can’t be too many of these suburban servos left.

I remember the ones in Watson, Ainslie (& the mad Scot and his wife who ran it!), Oconnor.

Progress I know but I’ll miss it and it was bloody handy having a bike shop just down the road.

What’s Your opinion?

I would speculate that it will be another unit development, although you wouldn’t get more than 2 or 3, I had figured the bike shop would be put up for lease, i may of seen a lease sign but not something i paid much attention too, although it always seemed quiet as a business. I don’t see another cafe being opened as it is close to units! I was thinking today actually what the long term effects would be as their would be traces of petrol etc in the ground?, therefore would that make the block uninhabitable for residential purposes? would people buy a property on an ex service station block?
